3 Facts About Myself

  • When I was born I originally was going to be named Brittany. My dad (how ironic he isn’t even in my life anymore) did not like that name at all. My aunt (dad’s sister, which really isn’t in my life anymore neither) came up with Crystal. I am grateful because Crystal defiantly suits me.
  • I had eyes for my husband long before we started dating. Our families have known each for as long as I have been alive pretty much. My aunt and his granny mentioned him to me. I creeped on his facebook and his lovely piano videos (what girl doesn’t love to be serenaded?) Nothing happened for a few years until one day I meet him at a wedding of one of my friends which he was playing in. Then the rest is history.
  • I absolutely love animals. I can’t even see an injured animal without breaking down into tears. Literally. If I could I would save them all. I am a huge advocate for any animal organization.

Jasmine’s Questions

How do you keep track of the books you’ve read and want to read?

Goodreads! My shelves are my babies. Plus I like to keep track in my bullet journal.

Is there a book that you were required to read and really enjoyed?

The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

The Help

Describe your perfect reading experience (where are you, what’s the weather like outside, what is the time of day, be as detailed as possible).

I am on my front porch at night. The sky is clear and all you can see are stars with a full moon. The crickets and frogs are the only thing I can hear. The summer night breeze is gently blowing the trees. Everything is so peaceful and relaxing. Hopefully I will get to have many summer nights like this, this year.

Name a book that changed your life or transformed your opinions or perspective on something.

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green. I truly never realized how bad OCD can be.

Turtles All the Way Down

*If you’re comfortable, please share a really embarrassing moment (maybe it’s book-related!)

I have many embarrassing moments on a daily basis pretty much. Like I said before I get my words mixed up all the time. Only when I speak though. And not surprisingly I can’t think of any at the moment…

Malanie’s Questions

If you had a million dollars, what would you spend it on?

Pay my debt off, give some to my family, give a lot to my church , charities, put some into stocks, put the rest into savings, oh and buy books!

What hyped book, do you hate/dislike?

Hmm, the one popping into my head at the moment is Lord of the Flies. I haven’t ever really hated a book but I do dislike this one.

Lord of the Flies

What is your worst and best trait?

My worst trait is being restless minded. It can cause me to be unstable. My best trait is being compassionate.

What is the most interesting thing you’ve read this week?

I have just been reading one so far this week, Heir of Ashes by Jina S. Bazzar.

Heir of ashes

If you were arrested with no explanation, what would your friends and family assume you had done?

Probably reckless driving, haha.

      Haha, yes. I totally can relate to that except it’s my husband and whoever else rides with me. 😝 plus I have a tendency to run stop signs and stop lights on an accident.

    Those little planets are the cutest thing. I love it! Anyway, I loved reading your answers, Crystal…or should I say Almost-Brittany? It really is crazy how a possible name could have totally changed it all. And I loved hearing about how you had checked out about your husband before! That is so cool that you knew about him before and it ended up being love. And same way with Goodreads – I literally have to ask Goodreads whether or not I’ve read a book before – I’m at that point now, lol. Thank you so much for the tag on it, and this was so much fun to read, Crystal!! ❤

      I’m glad you like it! I was actually thinking about changing all of my designs but I’m really indecisive. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ Thanks so much Mandy for all the kind words. 💕💕
